Samba de Amigo confirmed for Wii

Fans say it’s a match made in heaven – and it seems that Sega clearly agrees as the Japanese games giant has now confirmed that massive cult hit Samda De Amigo is heading to Wii, according to



Originally developed for Japanese arcades in 1999 and appearing on Dreamcast a year later, Samba De Amigo sees players take control of two maracas which they must shake in time to the in-game music.

With the Wii already boasting a motion sensitive Remote and Nunchuck, the ease of developing the game for the system has obviously encouraged Sega to take the plunge.

There has not yet been confirmation of a European release, but fingers crossed the game will reach these shores.
